Ch. Angélus (0.75 L)
WA: A real sleeper of the vintage, and somewhat underrated and under the radar after the greatness of 2000, the 2001 Ang¿ªlus is on a faster evolutionary track than the 2000, but it is a plush, sexy, succulent style of Ang¿ªlus with a dense plum/purple color, loads of chocolate, blueberry and blackberry fruit, telltale floral scents in the intense fragrance, and a lush, voluptuously textured and opulent mouthfeel. This wine seems to have entered its plateau of maturity, where it should stay for at least another 10-15 years. It is a major sleeper of the vintage.
